It feels like it’s been forever since I did one of these “catch up with me” blogs, so I thought it was about time that I brought you all up to speed with what’s been happening so far this year.
Let’s rewind to January! Jan was a super exciting time for me, not only was it my birthday but it was also wedding dress shopping time. I’m going to write a separate blog post on how I found this experience but for now in a nutshell I can honestly say it was incredible, emotional, stressful and confusing. Did I find my wedding dress? We will have to wait and see 🙂
I’ve always tried to be as open as I can about my body insecurities and going wedding dress shopping made me feel very anxious. I’m not where I want to be fitness wise but instead of crying myself to sleep over it, I’m turning those feelings into motivation to get more fit and to feel the best that I possibly can on my wedding day. I’ve disclosed this before and I was off to a great start at the beginning of the year, until I fell in the middle of the road and badly bruised my knee. Ouch! This set me back quite a bit, I felt sorry for myself and quite frankly stopped caring. I was very negative during the time it took my knee to heal but then I realised that I was being stupid and I needed to shake my butt again. Gareth and I have been working out to The Body coach on YouTube this week and I’m loving it. If you don’t have access to the gym, I can highly recommend it. Our plan is to take this class twice a week from home and then we’ll head to the gym for the rest of the week. I’ll keep you updated on how we get on!
In other news, if you didn’t already know, I’m now a Skincare Influencer for Dermalogica (yay me) which I’m so happy about. It’s such a honor and an amazing start to my year, thank you so much for everyone who’s messaged me personally to congratulate me. It honestly means the world to me. I also have some incredible collaborations coming up, so keep an eye out on my social channels for these. Gareth and I are creating new and fresh content over the next few months and we can’t wait to show you what we have been up to. As you know, Gareth dabbles in photography and I have always had a passion for it too, so with that in mind we both want to create unique and stylish content that we love and we hope you love it too.
